Russell Crowe Is The New Jor-El

Negotiations are currently underway to lock in Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Supes' dad, for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman movie, Man of Steel.

As Variety note, this big name casting echoes the engagement of Marlon Brando in the first Superman feature. While it seems likely that Crowe is likely to have very little to do, we don't really know the extent of the role in this new story.

We know there are rumours about the casting of Lara. We're looking into them.
